Imagine and Anticipate
Functionality and beauty are the two pillars of architecture and design. There is no doubt that creating a space that works is equally as important as what it looks like on the surface, interior or exterior.

I have a degree in Interior Design from the Art Institutes. When I stepped into my career, I was pleasantly surprised at the enthusiasm I had when I stumbled into the sales and distribution side of the
industry- Working for various companies who manufacture or distribute different building materials. From concrete roof tile, to porcelain flooring, to natural and manufactured stone, I have been involved
in projects from the top, down- literally.
But, I am a designer first and a sales person second. The main importance of saying this is that I pay close attention to who I’m working for and what they stand for. I want to feel confident in the people

When I was presented with a new opportunity to work for Cosentino just over a year ago, I quickly saw all of the value and substance that they bring to the table. A global, family owned company
from the Southern part of Spain, Cosentino is a leader in architectural surfaces for both residential and commercial projects. “Imagine and Anticipate” is the mission statement that drives their
creative vision and paves the way for innovation and technological advancement. State of the art design and cutting edge technology has allowed them to create product lines that are aesthetically
pleasing but also fully functional. They have programs that meet the needs of national home builders, commercial contractors, residential designers, kitchen and bath showrooms,
amongst other segments. They understand that it’s not just a “one size fits all.”
Cosentino invests in quality but more importantly, they invest in their people. As they have grown and expanded into over 80 countries and 5 continents, they have been able to provide opportunities
for others to share in their successes. Each year they roll out new incentives and benefits for their employees to show their continued appreciation. In business, it is important to have an understanding
that the greatest return you will receive is when you invest in your people.
